Useful Woodworking Resources

It can be useful to know what woodworking resources other woodworkers are using and/or monitoring.  This is why I decided to include this resource list that I created.  I will update or change my woodworking resources list as required, so be sure to check back periodically.  If you have any questions or comments about this list, please let me know.  Also, If you would like me to add your site or channel to my woodworking resources list,send me an email with a link and I’ll check it out to see if it would benefit the woodworking community as a whole.

Here is the list of software and apps that I use as woodworking resources:

As far as these programs go, I would consider myself a “jack of all trades and master of none”.  It is entirely possible that there are better programs out there that I do not know of.  If you know of one that works better than the ones I use, let me know.  I really need to devote more time to learning these programs… but that would take me away from other tasks/projects.  I left Adobe Illustrator off of the list even though I have used it in the past.

Sketchup – For designing and drawing my plans.

Gimp – To edit and resize my pictures

Vegas Pro 13.0 – For compiling and editing videos

Camtasia Studio 8 – On the rare occasion I need to use screen capture

Sothink Logo Maker Professional – To crate my logos

Fraction Calculator Plus (on iPhone) – to easily do math involving fractions

Other general resources that I use:

Although this is not really related to woodworking, it is very much related to household maintenance.  My father owns a heating and air conditioning business in Panama City, Florida and provides top-notch service to all of Bay County.  If any of you live in the area and find yourself in need of AC repair, Beahan’s Heat and Air will be able to take care of you.
